Space Administrators are the first level of support for granting access to their wiki space.  They are empowered and have the capability (and are better equipped to know the levels of permissions that would be appropriate) to manage users into their Wiki Space. Space Admins have full access to the tools that enables them to do that.  Wiki Admins support them if they run into issues.

In addition to the instructions below for space administrators, check the Wiki Basics and FAQs pages for more information. If you have any further questions, please email the wiki administrators.

Space Admin FAQs

How do I give someone access to my space or find out who already has access?
In your space, click the Space Tools menu (bottom left) and select Permissions. For instructions, see View/Change Permissions and the other links in the 'User Access/Permissions' panel to the right.
Which users are in a user group?
You can use the User List macro to display a list of users in a group. For instructions, see User Group Maintenance. Space Administrators can create a new user group or add/remove users in a group using the Custom Space User Management tool under within Space Tools.
Is it possible to let users see or edit certain pages in a space but not others?
To set restrictions for a page, click the lock icon above the page name. Remember that Viewing/Editing restrictions on a page do not grant viewing/editing permissions to users — they restrict these permissions to certain users or groups among those who have already been granted these permissions in the space (see View/Change Permissions). For additional documentation, see Page Restrictions and Permissions and restrictions.
Is there a list of all restricted pages in my space?
In your space, click the Space Tools menu (bottom left) and select Permissions. Click the Restricted Pages tab to see the list. For additional documentation, see View all restricted pages in a space.
titleSee a list of users in a user group?

Click the Space Tools button at the bottom of the left sidebar and then select Manage Users/Groups. Click a group name among those listed on the left side of the page to see the group membership.  If the group does not appear in this area, it is a legacy user group (pre-2010).  Please contact the Wiki Administrators to view the group membership or make changes to it.

titleAdd Google Analytics code to my space?

You need to create a page to hold the tracking code, and then add a 'page include' referencing that page on each page you want to track:

  • Create a page to hold the tracking code:
  • Create a new page entitled Google Analytics in your space.
  • Add an HTML macro block to the page by typing {html}
  • Can I recover a deleted page or attachment?
    In your space, click the Space Tools menu (bottom left) and select Content Tools. Click the Trash tab to see a list of deleted pages and attachments. Click the Restore link to the right of the one(s) you want to recover. For additional documentation, see Restore deleted pages.
    Can I modify the left sidebar?
    In your space, click the Space Tools menu (bottom left) and select Configure Sidebar to modify elements as desired. Don't forget to click the Done button at the bottom to save your changes. For additional documentation, see Configure the Sidebar.
    Can I use Google Analytics in my space?
    You can use the HTML macro to insert Google Analytics tracking code on any page you want to track in your space. Go to the page you want to track, click Edit, and add an HTML macro in the body of the page by typing {html}. Inside the HTML macro block that appears, paste the javascript tracking code copied from your Google Analytics account.
